Three Year Old – Eric Church

This track from his brilliant new album just slays me. As a man and a father of now-grown sons, it’s had me thinking back, thinking about the things my boys taught me. And they taught me from the very start of their lives, as Eric’s boy is doing at age three here in this song. This is some brilliate songwriting. It’s about fatherhood and about maturing as a man. I’ve already listened to it a bunch and just this time noticed that there is also an apology to his wife here in these words. One string of words he sings the most is: “when you’re wrong, you just say so.”
